the election if romney loses? the morning after they'll say it wasn't because he wasn't far night enough. i wonder the morning after the morning after. a lot of people say we have gone too far to the right. we need a different republican party. we need a center right republican party. i think the country needs. because it needs to be a check on the left and the center left, and it's the only way we're going get big comprises on the big issues. >> can i add, i mean, a little history can clinton and rage. the second term was the productive term. the big achievement. it's hard no know whether the republican party will -- where they will push the blame if that happens. but the question is how they decide to spend the next four years. and i think it's very hard to tell. but there is some hope in looking back at both clinton and reagan. >> reagan was considered a far-right lunatic running a far right republican party, by the way, at the time. by whoever the equivalent was at the time. maybe it was tom freedman. in fact he wasn't. >>, i mean, life is more complicated despite the analogy. >> he rac
romney hasn't been forceful enough. last year -- last elections 61% 45%. romney is running better than mccain ran in the polls. and i do believe it's because of disenchantment with president obama i know a will the of people myself antidotal doesn't do much good here. who they are not sure about romney, that's why i'm saying that the first debate means everything if he can inspire people who are not devoted. 42% devoted to president obama are not going to vote for romney. there is swing area there where if the president comes off weak or flustered. if romney can fluster him. romney is going to pick those up quickly there is much bigger than the first debate. >> i would say president obama is a known quantity. is he probably not going to change people's opinions of him. romney is a little different. even though he has been doing this for years now we have been through a whole series. people didn't watch those. people didn't watch the convention he have a big audience he is the one that needs to make a big impression. >> bill: no doubt. people need to look at the two men on the stage and
that said that the romney campaign now wants to frame this election as a choice and not a referendum which is something totally different. it says this election is a choice between two our nation's future . . . interesting shift of strategy, isn't it? >> i think it means it is going to be more aggressive instead of trying to run the ball up the middle. i think they are going to be throwing passes. if you are making at it comparison, you have to show what your policies are. >> but they have been quiet about this stuff -- >> that's right. and that's what i think they are going to do in the debate. >> jennifer: do you not think the shift to choice is a response to the fact that the election was becoming more of a referendum not on president obama but to mitt romney. yes. absolutely. so it does reflect their change in their strategy. the only thing is about the amount of money i don't think that will be thedefining issue in this debate. >> jennifer: what do you think, peter? do you think the obama campaign is going to agree that this campaign is a choice of very
head of the libertarian party. could he cost mitt romney the election it's a very interesting question. we'll talk to him as well later on "the young turks." >> stop! we need to balance the federal budget now or we're going to find ourselves without a country. you look like a bunch of zombies!

know, mitt romney was the most, is the most electable of that group. the process worked. i don't think the republican party can really blame anybody or even themselves for nominating the wrong guy. the trouble is the guy who is the best of the field lacks the common touch that wealthy, privileged people need. franklin roosevelt, privileged, wealthy, had the common touch. john f. kennedy had the common touch. ted kennedy and bobby kennedy did. nelson rockefeller did in new york. mitt romney does not convey that. >> that is such an interesting point, roger, you're making. i believe a lot has been lost whether you talk about wealth and affluence. it does not equate an absence of empathy as he says in the case of health care law in massachusetts. that does not void you of concern for common man or require you to have the assumption that those who are not successful, let's say, the 47%, are not wealthy because they are not doing something right and you are wealthy because you have this magic touch or somehow you worked harder than the guy who lives on the other side of the tracks. >> that's

. governor mitt romney asking election officials in three states to extend the deadline for troops overseas to send in their absentee ballots. he said wisconsin, mississippi and vermont all missed last month's deadline to send the ballots to the troops. campaign staffers say they plan to send a similar letter to officials in michigan next. governor romney's running mate says he agrees with something that vice president joe biden said today in north carolina. team fox coverage from the trail coming up here a bit later on the fox report. first, a virtual army of border patrol agents, sheriffs investigators and the f.b.i. now combing the mexican border to find who ever shot and killed one of their own. it happened earlier today near the town of naco, southeast of tucson in a known drug smuggling corridor there. three border patrol agents were together when the shooting happened. the agent who died is nicholas ivy, 30 years old. another of the agents wounded, but expected to survive, and a third was unhurt. >> the f.b.i. is at the scene is investigating and is going to get to the bottom of this
are looking better, though, for mitt romney in north carolina. in north carolina the arg poll shows romney leading 50-46%. and a ppp poll out today that shows it all even. so we'll keep that state in the toss-up column. there are 36 days until the election. this election actually despite everything you are hearing it is still up in the air. so don't count your chickens folk. back with us from washington, d.c. is peter fenn, and joining me here inside "the war room," duf sundheim. duf, let me start with you, because of all of the polls that have been out lately there has been some movement of republican money. there have been in fact fox business news is reporting that some of mitt romney's new york donors are taking their money to the house and senate. and that trend reflects an increasing level of anxiety both with the nature of the romney campaign, and polls show president obama has a lead in swing states that some republicans think is insurmountable. do you think it's too soon? >> yes. you are going to see some anxiety, you are at a football game, and people start
's talking about. you know, they are here to stay if romney and ryan get elected. you can count on that. it's no wonder the romney campaign is struggling with this entire message. but when all else fails, what you got to do is blame the media. >> carrying water for barack obama? >> it kind of goes without saying that there's definitely a media bias. >> where have you seen it in this campaign where you feel they are judging you by one standard and obama by another? >> i'm not going into fit for tat. there's a media bias. and anybody with objectivity would believe that. >> blaming the media is the latest talking point for paul ryan. at a fundraiser, ryan told supporters the campaign needs their help to fight off the media. >> we can't expect the president to play fair. he's not. we're not expecting the media to tell our story. they are not. >> i guess paul ryan didn't hear what new jersey governor chris christie said about people who blame the media. >> we can complain about coverage of the campaign. if you do that, you're losing. >> and ryan obviously didn't get the memo from the romney camp
are a romney voter or fan for something that would change the apparent course of the election which you look at the thing nationally and it appears to be a pretty tight race. if you look at it in the key states. president obama appears to be ahead nearly everywhere. and by a significant margins in some places such as ohio where it's several points. now, you can't say that it's over. it certainly is not straight line projections are very dangerous in politics. things can change. always on the lookout for something to change it debate might much although it hasn't happened very often. >> bill: i think it's going to happen this year one way or the other. this is the stat that i will point to the rat muffin poll has the president up by three which is good news by the president. has had romney up most of the other polling polling times however when asked are you definitely going to vote for your guy? definitely 43% in the rasmussen poll say yes for romney only 42 for barack obama. i believe if mitt romney does well and can sting the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will imm
the election. romney is only at 206. furthermore the associated press says in order for mitt romney to win, he would have to switch all these states. he needs florida colorado, and nevada and north carolina, and new hampshire, and virginia, and either ohio or iowa. but he's not winning in any of those states oops. divert the money. divert the money. run, run run. right now they're running for the hills. now that you're in these desperate straits, what are you going to do? you're going to go to dirty tricks, and on friday we started to tell but that. in five swing states hey look at that, those are the states that romney needs colorado nevada, north carolina, and florida and virginia, the states we gave you just a second go doing dirty tricks, and got busted. then the republican party fired them saying, we don't know about those guys. here is a guy on colorado only doing registrations for republicans. >> who are you region rejistrating. >> we're registering only republicans. >> you said you're only registering only republicans. >> we're trying to. >> she worked with the same republican hacks wh
-year visa program is popular with hispanics, that's a group that could decide the election and romney's got to make up some ground. there's a new cnn poll that has the president with 70% of the vote among hispanics compared to romney's 26%. romney is hitting the president hard on immigration. he's saying he's playing politics with this issue, he's passing what he called a stopgap measure, this two-year program, instead of passing long-term reform like he promised four years ago. scott you can expect to hear more of this in the debate tomorrow night. >> pelley: jan, thanks very much. cbs news will bring you live coverage of the debate tomorrow night beginning at 9:00 eastern time. we got good news today on the economy. overall, auto sales were up 13% last month from a year before. among the u.s. automakers, ford sales were unchanged, g.m.'s were up 1.5%, chrysler reported a 12% increase. there hasn't been enough good news like that on the economy. the recovery, of course, is painfully slow and one of the biggest reasons is the recession in europe. the 27 countries of the european union add u
, but he did it in a very interesting way. he said that he would rather that mitt romney win the election and they have a winning season for the giants. >> i think it is a safer bet. melissa: what do you think? >> it is tivo time and i think you have to be really careful when you are a team owner. john elway is endorsing colorado, they love him, so the question is you already know he needs to support them.
live in new york or a high tax state like massachusetts, you're supposed to move because romney got elected? >> listen, his tax cut plan is going to slam about 68% of the american people, not 47% of the american people. he can't provide real details. you could close every single loophole that benefits the wealthy and just close it for the wealthy and it wouldn't pay for a fraction of the tax cut he's giving the wealthy. >> because they're still getting ahead. >> reducing capital gains to zero which means romney would pay virtually zero taxes. he's going to come back and say i want to work this out with the congress. well, i just don't think the country is going to trust mr. 47% and this congress to play around with taxes because they understand very well and the democrats now have an advantage on taxes, which as you both know is very rare, they understand very well where romney's priorities are. he's for the people at the top. >> joan, why would you want to get rid of the estate tax unless you own $250 million, you don't expect to spend it all while you have time on this earth, you
buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney as the next president of the united states. >> reporter: the vice president later said that the middle class pain was due to bush policiepol. the debate symbolizes a problem for the president. the economic collapse happened under bush, but four years later, families are still hurting. many in the middle class are barely treading water. all fodder for tomorrow night's debate in denver. the first lady is make her way there. first she stopped in ohio. where early voting began today. >> are we going sit back and watch everything we worked for and fought for to just slip way? >> reporter: ann romney got to colorado before her. >> we have a debate comes up. we're excited about that. we're focused. >> reporter: family members' nerves are on edge, as josh romney confided to diane in august. >> i hate the debates. trying to sit there and be cool and keep a smile on your face. inside you want to fall down. >> reporter: four years ago, michelle obama got so nervous in the debates, she didn't like to watch them. she'l
seen the eagle's lives. anyway, oprah! so folks, nation, was this election day looming every one is trying to read the tea leaves. except romney who as a mormon is allowed only to read the caffeine free diet coke. but that's not looking good either because obama currently leads romney by 10 points in ohio, 9 points in florida and 12 points in pennsylvania which wouldn't be a problem if between now and november 6th we can just get 290 million people to move to arkansas. (laughter) arkansas, come for the mess, stay because you traded your car for meth. but-- (applause) but, folks there is no reason to panic over these pole numbers. just ask mitt. >> i'm curious to what you would say to your supporters, your donors that might be concerned that this could be slipping away way. >> i'm very pleased with some polls, not with other polls but at this early stage polls go up and down. >> exactly, it's still early, there are 40 days left until the election amount of lot can happen in 40 days. bama could make a gaffe. mitt could win the debates. god could send a flood to destroy all mankind.
responsible. >> i would agree. >> the question is, it seems to me, if romney is elected, then you have a party that you think it's irresponsible is now in a position where they have to govern and we will see what happens. but generally testicle party is more towards the center when someone becomes president. just the way the left is on happier with obama in many respects, then we would see what would happen with the democratic opposition. if obama wins a second term, that will be interesting question. i'm optimistic because my reading of history is different than jessica's we have been this partisan and is in gridlock many times in our history. people were buried when they put "democrat" or "republican" on their tombstone. you all remember the tariff issue. it is almost designed to create this. on sorry. i wish i could say this is dysfunctional, but i think the system is designed to create this. but we think the kettle is about to blow, sometimes, though not all the time, we have a civil war because we cannot solve these problems. often, there is a coming together. i'm actually optimistic that
still be deciding whether or not to vote for president obama or mitt romney in the upcoming election. venezuelan's president doesn't get to cast a ballot but he made his pick. >> if i lived in the united states i would vote for obama. >> not the kind of endorsement president obama would like. mr. chavez recognizes that as well so he prefaced the statement as well he hopes it doesn't hurt the president. well the venezuelan president also running for re-election himself. the vote will be held on sunday. >> reporter: when a position candidate challenged venezuelan president hugo chavez to a debate earlier this debate, chavez's reply was the eagle doesn't hunt the fly for a man who has been in power for 13 years, dismissing the opposition as feeble as part of his political strategy. but the equation might be changing. a 0-year-old governor is taking venezuela's political scene by storm. he's facing chavez in next sunday's presidential election while speaking with international media monday, he blasted chavez's cozy relations with iran and belarus. >> translator: what does venezuela have
an election coming out of it. i want to take you back decades and indulge me. mitt romney, a republican candidate for governor in bluer than blue massachusetts. in mere weeks he went to a five-point winner on election night. and you know something? the debates had a whole lot to do with that. matt viser is a political reporter who has just written a great piece on the '02 race and mitt romney's political resourcefulness. joining me live. great story and i think, you know, either i'm just too young to really remembered it, which i think is not true, but i think a lot of people don't know that mitt had this remarkable turn around. how did he do it? >> yeah, i mean, in 2002, really the only political race he's actually won, he was behind. i mean he was leading in the polls early on, he faltered, he was behind by six points with six weeks to go. he was -- there was an 18-point gender gap. people favored his opponent shannon o'brien. and he had a meeting with his advisers and they decided to shift gears. they went after her a lot more. they dropped some of the family friendly ad with ann, an
'm going to offer up a prediction. it's either romney or obama are elected, that we're going to find ourselves with a heightened police state, something that should be rolled back. i'm going to suggest we're going to find ourselves in a continued state of war. military interventions that result in this case hundreds of millions of enemies to this country that i'm going to argue wouldn't otherwise exist but for our military interventions and then offer up a prediction, obama or romney gets elected, we'll find ourselves continuing to borrow and spend money in ways that are absolutely not sustainable. i think we are looking at a monetary collapse. we just can't escape the mathematics of what we're doing. >> host: is there a question via twitter. they want your take on congress. mr. johnson, what would you do to motivate the next do-nothing congress? you just called both parties corrupt. >> guest: i find it an exciting notion that libertarian president would challenge democrats on what they're supposed to be good at. civil liberties. look, let's not bomb iran. let's get out of afghanista

. >>> presidential election takes place five weeks from tropical depression. president obama and mitt romney are practicing for the first debate tomorrow night. the stage is being set at the university of denver, romney will need a stellar performance to turn the tide of polling that has him trailing the president in many of the nine battleground states expected to decide the elect. last night in denver, romney previewed one of his lines of tack. >> we've had 43 straight months of unemployment above 8%. what he does the president have to say? he says forward. i think forewarned is a better turn. >> as for president obama, he took a break from practice debate yesterday to visit workers at a nevada campaign office, making a few calls to voters. abc news will buy you live coverage starting at 6:00 right here. >>> if you are flying with spirit airlines you want to pay attention to a new rule. airlines says f you don't pay for your carry-on in advance you will have to pay $100, at the gate for each piece. spirit is one of the few carriers who charge for carry-ons if you tell the airline in advanc
pink slips in advance to big budget cuts. all three happening before the election. mitt romney has finally put meat on the bones of his tax reform idea. he floated the idea of a $17,000 cap on tax reform reduction. >> you could say everyone is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. you can fill that bucket if you will and higher income people might have a lower number. >> this is brand new stuff. we have howard dean former vermont governor and candidate. and let's look at this for a second. what do you think? a $17,000 cap on tax deductions for everybody as a way of being fair because the upper end would pay more. what do you think? >> i don't have a problem with the eidea of deductions. here you are. you guys are talking about the private sector all the time. so, i've been convinced because of the high rate of canadian home ownership, i'm not convinced of doing away with charitable deductions. $17,000 ceiling for all tax deductions across the board. sure, steve. the upper end people would have a problem across the board. >> i like this idea a lot. i just heard about it an hour ag
digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: that's the kind of zinger sure to be heard tomorrow night. doug, andrew and chris say they hope to hear a lot of substance, too. at debate number one in their battleground ate. a lot is on the line. doreen talked about the nbc news "wall street journal" poll. 38%. more than a third of voters saying this debate and the three to follow, one vice presidential work the more presidential, will be important or extremely important to their decision about who to vote for. live from denver, i'm steve handelsman, news4. >> thank you. >>> a freelance american journalist who disappeared in syria eight weeks ago is now seen in a video clip posted on youtube. his name is austin tice. he is a former marine from the houston area. his stories were published in the washington most and the mcclatchee newspapers. in that video he is in the cuss different masked arld men. he is blindfolded. he appears frightened. the state department officials say the captors have taken steps to make it appear he is being held by extremi
converge, and that's what matters and 49% puts you in the, quote, re-elect zone. what's affecting romney, this is something we've been watching there is an enthusiasm gap among core republican voters among core democratic groups. overall there's a ten-point advantage among those republicans who call themselves nines or tens when on a scale of one to ten asked how interested they are in this election. there's been a ten-point gap pretty consistent all year. that's why for instance on the registered voter number, the president has a seven-point lead and it shrinks more than in half down to three, because the republican vote is more enthusiastic and they get through our likely voter screens. there's a lot of hispanics not getting through our likely voter screens. >> howard, there's a number that talks about people who haves extremely positive views of president up to 37%. how do we square those two numbers? >> well, i think the president obviously has solidified his base very well. i think the convention helped to do that in charlotte. i think that was a terrific job by his team of exciting
of the swing states that will decide the presidential election. well, here is mitt romney, we have heard these words before, sounds as though he's downplaying expectations as they say. take a listen. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there is going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. >> so romney is saying, no, it is not about winning, not about losing, it is about america. but you have a lot of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new yor
for the romney campaign. they thought they would be able to prevail in this election by pointing out the flaws they see in president obama. the problem is as you mentioned a couple minutes ago that indictment hasn't been crystal clear to a lot of voters. and also, at some point, voters want to know what does the future look like? how will it be different under president romney. and i think continuing through the end of the election, he has to be able to make the case, yes, you want change, and i think a lot of people do want change. they clearly want change. but he's not closed the case in saying i'm preferable to president obama. i don't even know he's come close to closing the case. and so somehow he has to breakthrough tomorrow and say this is what the world looks like and how it'll be different under president romney. >> five weeks until election day. jim vandehei, appreciate it, jim. >>> coming up, a tough night for america's team, tony romo and the cowboys embarrassed on monday night football. highlights next in sports. mike rowe here at a ford tell me fiona, who's having a big tire even
important that this election come off with mitt romney and ryan as president and vice president. >> now, this may come as cold comfort for those jets fans who spend their hard-earned money watching a team that can't score led by an owner who cares more about mitt romney than quarterback mark sanchez. but actually that's not surprising at all because what woody johnson apparently cares about most is not his franchise, but his taxes. and he knows that if romney wins, he stands to receive a windfall of money when his taxes are slashed by 20%. and that's why this fall he's not betting on coach rex ryan. his money is on paul ryan. but there's a final reason for why woody johnson doesn't need to worry about his flailing franchise. it's called redistribution, the very mechanism described as socialism by the nfl commissioner that allows his franchise to keep financially thriving even if the team doesn't win another game. that's why woody johnson can gamble on mitt romney, because johnson wins even
